[movies]Robotic Lander Development Project
The Robotic Lander Development Project at the Marshall Center is testing a prototype lander that will aid in the design and development of a new generation of small, smart, versatile robotic landers capable of performing science and exploration research at multiple destinations in the solar system. The prototype also provides a platform to test sensors, avionics, software, landing legs, and integrated system elements to support autonomous landings on airless planetary bodies in the solar system.

[movies]Controlled Hover Test Flight No. 4
This video collage provides several views of the robotic lander prototype during its second free flight test. The lander is captured in flight from overhead and side mounted cameras in high definition and infrared video. The infrared video allows engineers to see how the vehicle is behaving thermally as well as how the thrusters pulse during test since the thruster plumes are invisible to the naked eye..

[movies]Successful Small-Scale Rocket Motor Test
Engineers at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. successfully tested a sub-scale solid rocket motor on May 27. Testing a sub-scale version of a rocket motor is a cost-effective way to evaluate new materials, technologies or processes, and rapidly assess performance. Data from the 21-second test will be evaluated to better understand the performance of a new nozzle configuration, processes and materials.

[movies]Solar Sail Readies for Early Warning Mission
NASA's Solar Sail project, directed by L'Garde of Tustin, Calif., plans to take this innovative technology beyond Earth's orbit. The spacecraft will have a "sail" one quarter the size of a football field and park in a pseudo LaGrange point closer to the sun to double the current warning period for dangerous solar flares. Slated for launch in late 2014, the instrument aboard the solar sail craft will use the sun's photon radiation to gently offset the corresponding pull of the sun's gravity.
